MARSHALL COUNTY, Ind.--  Incumbent Matthew Hassel won another term as sheriff in Marshall County. He started serving as sheriff in 2015 after the previous sheriff died of cancer.

Before that he was the Bremen Police Chief.

On the campaign trail, Hassel promised to expand the county's drug enforcement and rehabilitation.

He also wants to improve the 9-1-1 dispatch signal throughout the county.

He spoke after the final results were released.

"I'm feeling great. I really love serving the people. I really love this job. I've been in law enforcement and correction for 41 years and I know nothing else. So, I need to stay with the career I started with," Hassel said.

Hassel's opponent, Democrat Jeff Sharp, gave the following statement.

“Due to early voting results, it would appear that we were unsuccessful in this election. I am incredibly grateful for all of the support that I received through this campaign. My prayers are and will continue to be with each of the community members and first responders of Marshall County. Again, thank you for the support that was shown during this campaign.”
